Always be sure that the blade will move down to bevel
direction during a bevel cut. Keep hands out of path of
saw blade.
During a bevel cut, it may create a condition whereby the
piece cut off will come to rest against the side of the
blade. If the blade is raised while the blade is still
rotating, this piece may be caught by the blade, causing
fragments to be scattered which is dangerous. The blade
should be raised ONLY after the blade has come to a
complete stop.
When pressing the handle down, apply pressure parallel
to the blade. If the pressure is not parallel to the blade
during a cut, the angle of the blade might be shifted and
the precision of the cut will be impaired.
Always set the sub-fence to the left position when
performing left bevel cuts.
